Healthy Watersheds

In 2019 AFRC is partnering with the Mobile Bay National Estuary Program and Moffett and Nichol to identify the most important properties to target for conservation of watersheds affecting the Mobile Bay drainage. The goal is to identify and ultimately place under voluntary conservation easement 100,000 acres in 10 years. This project involves initial GIS work by Moffett and Nichol and, once important parcels are identified, direct communication to landowners by AFRC.
